Eastern Europe / Bulgaria
Bulgaria is one of the most exciting countries in Europe for birdwatching and wildlife tours. The country boasts of scenic landscapes, nice churches and monasteries, traditional villages and rich nature reserves. Habitats are really varied; within short distances you can experience alpine mountain meadows, spectacular river valleys, vast coniferous and beech forests, Mediterranean shrubs, wetlands, shallow coastal lakes and lagoons.
Our Spring round trips take you to the best places in the country from the high Vitosha Mountains to the Black Sea Coast. Central Balkan National Park incorporates alpine habitats and huge beech forests close to the capital, Sofia. The Rhodope Mountains are famous for scenic gorges giving home to Wallcreeper and vultures visiting feeding sites. The Sakar and Strandja Mountains along the Turkish border are a paradise for raptors and have an extraordinary diversity of fauna and flora. The Black Sea Coast is characterized by shallow lakes, coastal sand dunes, huge grasslands and beautiful riverine forests.
Our winter trip concentrates on Lake Durankulak and its environments as the most reliable site for masses of wintering Red-breasted Geese. The trip is combined with the Black Sea Coast of Romania and offers extensions to the Southern Carpathian Mountains or a boat trip in the Danube Delta. We also offer trips to Bulgaria specifically tailored to your needs, making the tour shorter or adding some extra habitats or days.
